Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2015 impresses


I’m a fan of Sauvignon Blanc. I know it’s not very wine geeky, but I really like it. And this is one of the best. I bought a case of the 2014, and it went pretty quickly, which is something that can’t be said for all my case purchases. I find that if you buy 12 of the same wine, often by the end of the case you end up wishing you’d bought just six. Not this stuff.

The 2015 is currently tasting just beautiful. It’s so delicate, aromatic, pure and precise, showing none of the clumsy flavours that Marlborough Sauvignon can sometimes have when it’s not handled very well. It’s a pristine wine and I’d buy it to drink now for this lovely aromatic precision, although this will no doubt age quite well, also.

Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Marlborough, New Zealand
So aromatic with lovely pear and passionfruit. Very floral and open, but with delicate grapefruit, too. The palate is crisp and transparent with lovely lemon, pear and lively grapefruit characters. So exotic, fresh and precise with amazing focus and freshness. 93/100

  1. I love Kiwi Sauv Blanc and I’ve never felt the need to apologise about it. In fact Villa María is one of the reasons I fell head over heels for wine in the first place.

  2. I remember the old style Montana SB..happily have moved on since those early days. Dog Point yes plus Villa Maria, The Ned, Greywacke, Staete Lande.

  3. Drinking this tonight…this and Craggy Range Te Muna Road SB are getting me back into NZ SB as a style. Very impressive juice indeed.
